    Maryland hires Turgeon

    Sources: Maryland hires Mark Turgeon as next head basketball coach - College Basketball News | FOX Sports on MSN

    Hopefully Texas A&M will be down next year to help out ISU.

    Unless Tx A&M fan support increases drastically, why would any coach from Notre Dame, Marquette, or any other BB school want to go there? Only if they get a huge pay raise. Turgeon wasn't exactly an unproven coach when he left Wichita State -- won a couple MVC championships and took the Shockers to the Big Dance regularly. He did get a big pay raise going to the Aggies though. I wonder how much A&M is willing to pay for their new MBB HC?

    A&M cannot afford Buzz Williams of Marquette due to his hefty buyout. He was target #1.

    Frank Martin has confirmed that Maryland has already talked to Dalonte Hill about an assistant coaching position. It looks like Maryland is getting serious about basketball. A top notch recruiter from Washington, D.C. is a good place to start.

    That would be fantastic. The majority of K-State's big time players recently have come from the DC AAU circuit.

    I just read this too....so A&M starts over, and perhaps K-State loses its best pipeline. I can sign off on that!

    Maryland slipped the last few years but Turgeon will have them back being a top 10 to 15 program soon.
